SCOTCH PLAINS/FANWOOD, NJ -- Scotch Plains-Fanwood High School defeated cross-town rival Union Catholic, 7-0, at SPFHS varsity field on Saturday afternoon.
Raiders starting pitcher Jake Friedman worked his way out of a one-out, bases loaded jam with two strikeouts to end the first inning.
"Jake had a shaky start and got stronger as the game went on," said varsity coach Joe Higgins. "He pitched a good game today and got the win."
Anthony DiNizo was the hitting star for the Raiders with a single and a double that went to the wall.
Reliever Eric Kaufman pitched a clean seventh inning.
Scotch Plains-Fanwood next travels to Linden on Tuesday.
